Therapist Questions - Depression

Heart/chest sensation
I have had this sensation in my chest that can be described as a sinking feeling (like that felt on a roller coaster, the G force felt but in my chest) for about a second, as though my heart 'skips a beat'. It usually happens when i think of something that worries me, or perhaps makes me sad? it feels like my heart or chest sinks a little or heart skips a beat.  Im 17 with no hereditary heart conditions.

Question on Alternative Treatments for Depression

I've been wondering about alternative treatments for depression.  I find myself suffering from depression again, and would like to treat it naturally.  I had been on Zoloft previously and it did work as recommended with no side affects but I would like to stay off the pharmaceuticals. I am taking Levothyroxine for low thyroid and my thyroid levels have been fine recently.

I have been vegan for over 5 years now and eat a lot of raw food.  I have been using several of the supplements recommended such as Iosol, conconut oil, and ground flax seed daily.  I also take a womens multi-vitamin, iron supplement, Vitamin D and calcium. My vitamin levels were checked a few months ago, and this is why I am now taking the Vitamin D and calcium daily.  Other than that everything was fine.

I am certainly not suicidal and never will be, but I have not been getting any exercise lately due to a long work commute.  Also when it's hard to get out of bed in the morning, you certainly do not feel like exercising.

Any suggestions you can make would be helpful.

Thank You.

I think i might have rocd?

Hello.I'm 20 and in my first serious relationship of around 6 months.I've noticed some things I think might mean I have rocd(relationship obsessive-compulsive disorder).1)I love my boyfriend and he's great,but I always catch myself thinking about cheating,just out of blue, from time to time. 2)when he's simply talking to me sometimes I feel very distant and irritated, and completely unable to pay attention.I catch myself having doubts about our relationship all the time. 3)When I came to visit him and he met me in the airport,first hour I felt like 'What the hell am i doing here I don't even care about him'.Luckily, it dissapeared with time. 4)We get along very well,but I keep on reminding myself we're going to break up anyway since we're from different countries and he'll have to go at some point, cause his studies finish sooner than mine. .

SOmetiems I get frustrated i fell in love just because I felt grateful that someone paid attention to me and fell in love with me because it never really happened to me before this.I get mad at myself for thinking bad about him and feel guilty cause I have no reason to dump him or cheat on him.

I also noticed that  everytime I fall in love/am in a relationship of some sort I start doing those ritualistic things like relying on fortuneteling, horoscopes, psychology articles and stupid stuff like that just to make myself feel like everything's going to be alright.You can't believe how much time I've wasted on this.Up to several hours a day when I'm bored.It's driving me nuts although by the end of the day I know I don't believe in this.it just makes me feel secure..

I also have those rituals like "if a phone calls the answer is yes" or "If he says something now I'll do it".I was always unable to make decisions.Once I couldn't decide if i wanted to go to a park for at least half an hour.I kept changing my mind every 5 minutes and driving everyone crazy.I'm afraid that I always need someone telling me what to do.

 

I'm sorry it's so long but my main question is could i have rocd or maybe i' just a little weird? :) thanks a lot..

EPA

I take 90% EPA fish oil capsules from a company called Mind1st for depression.  I have always taken fish oil capsules bought from places like Holland and Barratt but hadn't realised how little the EPA and DHA was in terms of percentage.  Mind1st say that taking DHA with EPA can inhibit the effects of EPA and at this dose is not needed as EPA is a precursor for the body to produce enough DHA. I have been taking these capsules for 3 months and have been able to slowly reduce my antidepressants. 

Can someone please tell me who is right about EPA and taking it with or without DHA?  It is all rather confusing.  My father died at 51 of a heart attack although my mother is still going strong at 97 and I have read that you need DHA particularly to avoid heart problems which I am not taking but the EPA seems to be working for depression.  Thank you.

Is Brain Surgery the right Cure for Depression?

This week the Daily Mail published an article on Deep Brain Stimulation that entails two holes being drilled into your skull and then the brain being stimulated with electrodes.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/health/healthmain.html?in_article_id=512373&in_page_id=1774

Is this the solution? Ask yourself, should brain surgery be used on non-life threatening illnesses? Surely it is imperative that all non-invasive options must be considered in the first instance.

What do you think?
